I was visiting a another abandoned property today and found these in the trash.

The block plane is a old 120 that is missing some parts

I have no idea who made the combination squares.

ok, be honest, how far down in the trash can did you have to go? (I would have gone to the bottom myself)

The 12” combination square is identical to one I inherited from my father. Its a Universal 65 from the Lufkin Rule Co, Saginaw Mi.
